Dom Perignon Vintage 1998 Champagne 75cl - Duo Pack
Extremely rare the Vintage 1998 is now available in a two bottle gift box. The vintage of 1998 was marked by two unusual and opposng occurences: the spectacular burning of the grapes caused by record hight temperatures in August, followed by exceptional rainfall in the firt two weeks of September. The harvest was delayed and the wait was rewarded with the miraculously fine weather that followed. The grapes were healthy and at peak maturity. The initial notes of fresh almonds and grapefruit lead to cahsew nuts and spices. The sensation is one of entering a wave: a satiny texture curls and unfurls on the palate, embracing and caressing it. The persistance is remarkable, and with just the slightest undertone of tartness (citrus zest and buds).
